2020 Oregon Book Awards
Congratulations to all of the finalists for this year's Oregon Book Awards. While we're sad that we're not able to celebrate them all in person this year, we are looking forward to the radio celebration of the winners and finalists on OPB radio at 7 pm on Monday, June 22nd.
The finalists' books are listed below, by category. Some of these books are in short supply under the best of circumstances, and we're definitely not living in the best of circumstances for the moment. So we encourage you to order early and we ask for your patience in processing orders online.
On the evening of June 22nd we will indicate the winners in each category on this page. For the time being they are listed alphabetically within each category. The are challenging times, but how fortunate we are to live in a state with so many talented writers and with the amazing wonderful people of Literary Arts.

Children's literature comes next.
Young adult literature comes next.
Graphic literature comes next.
And this year's lovely hosts, Omar El Akkad and Elena Passarello!
